About Liver Transplant
In India even though there are 25,000 patients with liver failure but from those only 1100 patients undergo liver transplantation. The only treatment modality for patients succumbing to acute or chronic liver failure is liver transplantation. As in the case of kidney failure, there is an alternate option of dialysis is available but there is no substitute for maintaining a patient with liver failure for a longer period of time.
Liver transplant is not at all an easy step to take but it can save lives. Over the past several years survival rates after a liver transplant have improved remarkably. In the liver transplantation procedure, the failing liver is replaced by a new one. A lot of Hospitals are equipped with the latest and best facilities for offering 360-degree care in liver disease and transplantation. The 'State of Art' liver intensive care units and operation theaters ensure that the liver transplants which are provided are a safe and smooth process for all. There are various surgical tools available these days that ensure bloodless and safe liver surgeries. The surgical tools which are used are Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator, argon laser coagulation, etc. The liver is such an important organ of the body that you cannot live without it. When your liver has failed there is no other option except for transplantation either by a donated liver of someone who has died, or portion of the liver from a living donor.
